When I first saw the following statement in the bio of the band, “Them Howling Bones,” I’ll admit I was highly skeptical:
Their blues rock approach to music will take you back to the glory days of rock ‘n roll, when groups like The Doors, Led Zeppelin, and Cream were the backbones of rock music.
That’s setting the bar pretty high. Make no mistake though, the music of “Them Howling Bones” is badass. Incredibly, they weren’t bluffing. They really do capture the mid to late 70’s classic rock sound. One of their best songs, “Luci,” would not have seemed out of place on the “Dazed and Confused” soundtrack.
The song is just very well put together, with dynamic vocals and radical guitar solos. The energy conveyed makes it clear that these guys live for music and enjoy what they’re doing. It’s kind of a shame that popular music of today is such garbage, because if this was 1977…any kid who thought disco sucked would be listening to this(I happen to enjoy disco actually, but I like classic rock as well.) The good news though is that people who truly love to play music care little about money and fame. The process of creating jams such as these is it’s own reward. Everything else is just a bonus. These guys deserve a bonus.
